Mark H. Horwitz

Mark's research focuses on the Holocene geochronology of barrier island systems. His Master's Thesis dealt with the sedimentological characteristics and 3-D internal architecture of regional washover deposits, drawing on a large dataset gathered by the CRL prior to and following the multiple hurricane impacts along Florida's Gulf and Atlantic coasts in 2004 and 2005. His research is strongly field oriented, combining Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) with more traditional field techniques in order to gain insight into barrier island stratigraphy. Mark has authored and co-authored several papers on regional washover sedimentation.
